Bloom

Who doesn’t love the blooming of flowers in springtime, signifying new life & growth? How much more beautiful is it when that happens in people, not plants?! Bloom sessions aim to help cultivate spiritual growth among the women of SLE, through Bible teaching and nurturing inter-generational relationships.

Each session focuses on a topic relevant to us as Christian women, and we dig deep into God’s words for answers, and benefit so much from the insight & wisdom of fellow sisters during reflection and prayer times.

We meet four times a year on a Saturday afternoon, and would love you to join us- if you’re a woman, and if you’re uni-aged and above!

UPCOMING EVENT

Untangling Emotions – Part 2

Saturday, 5 September 2020
1:30 – 4:00pm AEST
Various Homes

Session Materials

In the first part of our series, we identified what emotions are and where they come from. We also explored what godly emotions are and how Jesus shows us what are the right feelings we ought to have with the right intensity. We were challenged to see that the mature Christian life involves a fully functioning emotional life, with godly emotions that flow out from having a heart like Jesus.

In the second part of our series on ‘Untangling Emotions’, we will look at the nitty-gritty details of how to engage with our everyday emotions. Knowing what godly emotions are, does not automatically produce godly emotions in us! We will explore the importance of engaging God in our emotions and the necessity of growing spiritual habits that nourish godly emotions. And we will deal specifically with emotions we may struggle with like anger, fear and guilt.

Due to the ever changing covid-19 situation, the Bloom Committee will continue to assess the best format in which we can gather. Registering early will help us greatly in our planning.

Untangling Emotions

Saturday, 20 June 2020
1:30-4:00pm
Homes of various ladies at SLE Church

Have you ever felt happy, angry, anxious or upset? If you're human, then you would have felt all these emotions and many more, whether you'd consider yourself an overly emotional person or not!

Have you ever felt confused, ashamed or proud about how you feel? Or wondered whether it was right to feel how you did? Have you stopped to think about what causes your emotions, what's the impact of your emotions, and if there's anything you can do about your emotions?

The Bloom committee is excited to host our first event of the year, where we'll think about our emotions, from God's perspective, revealed in His Word. We'll meet in small groups of 5-6 people, listen to a Bible talk and then mull over it together, considering & discussing how it should change how we think & feel about our emotions.

Thankfully, God wants us to be able to understand and sort out our emotions, not leave them in a tangled up mess.
